“Part of the joy of watching Game of Thrones is seeing our favorite characters absolutely annihilate each other. Verbally, I mean. Forget dragon fire, the most brutal burns come from the characters who fight with their words, laying into their enemies with a few well-timed quips. From Tyrion Lannister to the Queen of Thorns, we’ve picked out the sickest burns of the whole show. Game of Thrones? More like Game of Owns.”
